Publisher's Summary

Trailer Dogs is the profoundly profane, hysterically funny, yet often poignant, story of survival in today's near-extinct middle class. After losing their small business and life savings to the government's unfathomable shutdown, the author and her husband are forced to sell their home and move into a travel trailer. Still reeling from financial loss and the deaths of two of their beloved dogs, the pair embark on a new life in a trailer park, populated with some of the most unconventional characters you'd ever not hope to meet. There's Gretchen, the park's unsympathetic and conniving manager, and her puny, perverted husband, Lloyd, who "maintains" the park grounds and who gives pool algae a bad name. Daisy and Lonnie May are the author's closest neighbors, and are, perhaps, the park's most devoted couple. Only Daisy May happens to be Lonnie's dog. Trailer Dogs will make you laugh, cry, and maybe even a little angry. But it will never make you bored.

What did you like best about Trailer Dogs: Life in America's New Middle Class? What did you like least?

Best? The everyday life stories. Least? Not much going on after the narrator changed her reading style. In the beginning, the narrator was really enthusiastic. I liked that. I almost gave up as the stories didn't start til several chapters in.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

I don't know that there was any ending. It just....ended.
